    So about $8500 USD after it's said and done. Wow!! :eek:

    The cat may be creeping out of the bag on these rare Viggen chrono's.... Get yours quick, before it hits auction.

    I am hereby adding three months of more stay drunk days when retired - sipping grappa and looking at passersby in the galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
    Popping by the Vigorelli velodrome and check in to see if Alberto Masi is still in his bike shop. Getting more wrinkles in the white linen suit and maybe some bottom bracket grease on the Panama hat. Smoking cigars and harassing shop visitors with stories of the nineteen hundreds.

    I blame all here that have them and show them too often. Stop showing these great watches now and maybe the hype will die down and prices will stay level and maybe even drop.
    All forum members that own one should Send them all to me for locking up in a safe to stop you continuing this madness :D:D:D

    We are some comrades that has placed bets and I am not getting rich there as it is already at what I thought it would be. No, not shocked - just thankful I will at some point in the future be able to cash in and spend the money on la dolce vita...

    I'm interpreting it to mean that one day @styggpyggeno1 is going to sell his Viggen to fund a few bottles of Boccino Riserva Grappa and some Arturo Fuentes, which means...

    DIBS!

    From what I've seen of @styggpyggeno1 's collection, we should be so lucky to buy one from him. Every one of them look like they stepped out of a time machine. Gorgeous.

    I agree :) But since Nymans take 10 weeks to leave a cost proposal and to service it, it aint gonna happen :(
